Measurement Instructions

For a chart of required measurements please click here

HEIGHT:

From the top of the head to the floor (without shoes) is the height. Most people know their height. The height measurement usually determines the variation.

Variation Height Range
Short 5’4 " - 5’7 "
Regular 5’7 " - 5’10 "
Long 5’10 " - 6’1 "
Extra Long 6’2" – 6’5 "


WAIST:

This measurement is taken with the coat off, around the body. Place the tape measure directly over the shirt, just above the hip bones and through the navel. Insert a finger between the tape and body to insure proper ease. It is best to ask the customer if he desires the waist of his trousers tight or loose and measure accordingly.


NECK:

Measure with collar unbuttoned. Place the tape around the neck at the level the collar would fall if buttoned and take measurement. This measurement is taken for shirt neck size. It is most important if the customer’s neck size seems out of proportion to the rest of his body.


CHEST:

This measurement’s taken with the coat off around the body. Place the tape line well up under the arms, straight across the back, over the blades, and over the chest in the front. Insert a finger between the tape and body to insure proper ease. This measurement usually determines the coat size.


HIPS:

This measurement is taken with the coat off, around the body. Place the tape line directly over the parts around the largest part of the seat. Before taking this measurement, see that the customer removes all bulky articles from his hip pockets and has heels together. When fitting slacks only.


OVERARM:

This measurement is taken with the coat off, around the body in the same manner and position where the chest was measured, but this time including both arms. The normal difference between this measurement and the chest is seven inches. If the difference is greater than seven inches, then the coat should be a larger size to compensate for the extra material needed in the arms and shoulders. Example: A customer’s chest measurement is 40", but his overarm measurement is 49". This customer should probably take a size 41.


OUTSEAM:

Ask the customer to place his pants on his waist where he is comfortable (usually higher than they were before you asked). Take the tape and from the top of his pant line to the top of where the shoe meets the foot from the outside just below the ankle, add 1" and you have the pant outseam.


SLEEVE INSEAM:

This measurement is taken with the jacket on. Place one end of the tape measure under the arm at the point where the fabric comes together, then place the tape along the inside under arm seam down the inside seam to the point where the customer wants the sleeve to hit the hand. Normally, the jacket sleeve should hit the hand at a point where 1/4 inch of the shirt cuff is showing.


SLEEVE LENGTH
(total or shirt):

This measurement is taken with the jacket off. With the arm at the side, place one end of the tape measure at the nape of the neck and measure to the shoulder and down the arm to the wrist.

Variation Total Sleeve Inseam
Extra short 29" – 30" 15"
Short 31" – 32" 16"
Regular 33" – 34" 17"
Long 35" – 36" 18 "
Extra long 37" – 38" 19 "



HEADWEAR SIZE CHART:

Hat sizes are either in "size numbers", or from "small to 2-extra large". As an example, a "size number" of 6 7/8 is equivalent to a size "small". The correct way to determine the customers hat size is to place the tape measure around the head, locating the tape measure towards the middle of the forehead, and measuring in inches.

Order Size Hat Size Head Size Inches Head Size CM
Small 6 7/8 21 1/2 " 55
7 21 7/8 " 56
Medium 7 1/8 22 1/4 " 57
7 1/4 22 5/8 " 58
Large 7 3/8 23 " 59
7 1/2 23 1/2 " 60
X-Large 7 5/8 23 7/8 " 61
7 3/4 24 1/4 " 62

We have included our two shoe sizing charts that we work from, the charts that helps us insure that our customers get only the most professional and proper fit.
